A question we receive quite often is, "Can you trap moles in the winter?"
A major factor in eastern mole trapping during the winter months is how hard the ground gets. You may see eastern mole damage on your property and when the ground freezes you will notice the damage has seemed to stop. In this case most assume that the eastern moles have left but eastern moles don’t leave due to the cold and they also don’t hibernate. In fact during the winter eastern moles will dig deeper below the frost line to find food and warmer temperatures. Sometimes eastern moles will dig as deep as 18 inches during the winter months. We have even seen eastern mole tunnels popping up from under the snow.
